No matter what, NFL players can go home to their families, who let them take their minds off of whether they just lost or played poorly. To put things in perspective, so to speak.
Then again, you might end up getting an earful from a young fan who wasn't too pleased with the game.
The Vikings were supposed to have an easy win against the Browns, who were starting Brian Hoyer, their third-string quarterback a week ago, and had just traded away running back Trent Richardson. Well, the Vikings fell to 0-3 with a 31-27 loss.
Peterson probably just wanted to go home and relax with his daughter Adeja, but she had the same thought as pretty much everyone else who saw her father and his teammates play on Sunday.
So my daughter is laying here under me and just out the blue she says... I can't believe you lost to the Browns Daddy! Smh
